DC motor selection for robotic applications

This post is mainly contributed by the members of the electrical team of ARES robotics. For designing a rover prototype, we have to select motors for applications like Robotic arm, wheels, etc.  This post aims to be a single guide containing all the information required for someone to choose an engine for an application. I’ll try not to cover motor constructional details, but rather their types, advantages, and application areas.   Type of DC electric motors used in robotic : Servo Stepper Brush-less DC Brushed DC Geared DC DC linear actuators Servo motors It is a self-contained electrical device that…
